If anyone has lodging information for this facility, please post it here.

Well here's the best place to stay near LaSalle, inexpensive, clean and close to work.
It's called Prairie Lakes Hunt Club, it has a small hotel, a good 9 hole golf coarse ($ 5 for nine holes) and a nice restaurant.
It's out in the country, but it's only a ten minute drive to both Morris and Ottawa.
I was paying $120 a week (about three years ago). It took only about fifteen minutes to for me to drive to work,(except in the Winter).  
The Phone number is 815-795-5107, if I were to work at LaSalle again, I'd stay there again.

Thanks!
I just reserved a room there for the Dresden/LaSalle outages.  The rate was $175/week.  Not bad!  They said that there were fridges and two double beds in the rooms but no phone.
I guess I'll have to find another place to connect the computer so I don't miss my daily fix of NukeWorker.com.

Check in the Morris Herald newspaper first. There are always decent prices in Morris and it isnt that long of a drive. Ravine Woods is one apartment complex I stayed in back in the day. Drive around behind the Wal-Mart in Morris and you will see some apartments back there. Coal City, Ottawa, Seneca, and Braidwood have cheap places also.

Your #1 best bet is to go online and look for the classifieds in the cities I have mentioned. You can contact Denise Leasure with Bartlett. I am sure D can help you if she knows anything available. If you talk to her, tell her to send me an email.

Hope I helped ya. Enjoy the weather at Lasalle. :(

It's been a couple of years, but I remember that there is a Wal-Mart in Morris as well as a couple of good grocery stores. A lot of nice little shops on the main street in town and there is a pretty good shopping mall in Joliet, about 30 minutes away.

There is (was, at least) a Chili's restaurant right next to the Comfort Inn where I always stayed in addition to a few good local places to eat.

Sorry I can't say much about clubs as I was always too tired to go out except for shopping.

Your best bet is in Joliet. Working an outage at Lasalle doesn't afford you alot of time to go to the great city of Chicago, so Joliet is your best choice. Morris had a restaurant / sports bar called Turtles, which was decent. While you are at Lasalle, look up my brother (Mark Warren). He is a House HP there, and has been there for 20 years. He can give you alot of options in Morris/Ottawa/Channahon area.

P.S. Wearing anything showing you are a Vikings fan will just get the Bears fan talking about our trip to the Super Bowl this year....:)

What????? A viking in BEARS country????  hhhmmmm Morris is an ok area but if you are looking for  clubs, Joliet is the better bet.  Morris is growing but Joliet is the city.  As far as the food goes...Morris has only Chilis as far as chain restaurants go. There are some good local restaurants.  Shopping is limited to walmart and specialty stores downtown.  Joliet has a decent mall on Rt. 39 near most of the chain hotels.

If you like Mexican food, don't miss LaMex in Morris. Outstanding.

 If you want a small town,then I would suggest morris il. its about a 20 minute or so drive to the plant. or if you want something with more commercial stuff like a best buy, outback ect then joliet is your choice and that makes a commute to lasalle at about 45 minutes i think.

When I was looking for a place to rent up there, I really liked the look of Marsialles (sp) However I would not want to move there with out a 4WD/AWD vehicle. Those hills coud get really ugly in the winter. I ended up in Streator myself, it's pretty dingy IMO and not the best looking of places, but city-data.com says it has a lower rate of crime than where I am as a whole (Carbondale, IL) So we'll see. The reason I got the place was it was inexpensive, nice and within 15-20 minutes of work by car. I would probably be looking at Ottawa or one of the towns mentioned if you are looking to buy a nice family house. I think you could get a decent but older 3BR for under 200K and a lot nearer to low-mid 100Ks if you look. That's my plan in a year or two. A week ago from today we stayed 2 days in the Holiday Inn over in Morris, had to call more than a few before that however to get the room. It was ~200/night for a double.
